PlantOzarks / PlantMidwest Network

LifePoint began gathering regional church planters, pastors and leaders in 2006. This quarterly gathering focuses on quality training, networking with other leaders and ministering to one another in prayer. As the gatherings grew, LifePoint partnered with other cities to form a larger network. This larger network became known as PlantMidwest. Holding the same three-part vision, PlantMidwest is now in seven cities and growing. These gatherings engage men to encourage and cultivate church planting and strengthen the churches that are in our cities.

Acts 29 Church Planting Network

 LifePoint joined Acts 29 in March 2004 to partner in planting churches. Acts 29 is a global, diverse network of church-planting churches. The vision is to be a Spirit-empowered network of churches, united in mission to reach all people groups for the glory of God, planting churches that in turn plant more churches. The network has exploded to almost 600 churches globally, and continues to grow. The strength of this network rests in its intense church planter assessment process; commitment to biblical theology; and ongoing teaching, training, coaching, recruitment and encouragement through the network of planters.

Send North America / North American Mission Board

LifePoint partners with Send North America, a church planting network formed by the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to plant and revitalize churches across North America. NAMB encourages a strong recruitment, assessment, training and resourcing model for planting that strengthens LifePoint’s mission to plant more churches. 

Denominational Affiliation

LifePoint affiliates with the Southern Baptist Convention, Missouri Baptist Convention, and the Tri-County Southern Baptist Association. This affiliation enables LifePoint to participate in a broader scope of work than we could maintain on our own, including over 5,500 missionaries world-wide, theological training for pastors, social outreach work to the elderly and orphans, disaster relief work worldwide, and more. While we maintain affiliation with this denominational entity, LifePoint is in no way controlled by the denomination.
